RE: [N8VEM-S100:1199] S-100 board reorders

Andrew there is listed 22 for the 68K. That board would be ideal to work with the LAVA system for fast console IO and would open up a whole area for programming. I think we should go for it.


I’m wondering if we should consider doing “final prototype” boards for some of those with low number boards. The quality of the boards is excellent. The only real difference is tin rather than gold plating on the fingers.   Are they done by the same group. If not, what would the gold equivalent be.  I for one would be prepared to buy a final set of prototypes.  Could we do this. I know they are $150 for 3 but that’s fine for me. While definitely not for everyone, perhaps others may be interested in doing the same.

Subject: [N8VEM-S100:1199] S-100 board reorders




I am looking for ideas on S-100 board orders/reorders for after the S-100 LAVA PCB order arrives (imminent) and the S-100 Console IO board reorder (next).


The S-100 68K CPU board and S-100 80286 CPU board are the next PCB orders.  However I really don’t have a clear preference for the next board reorders.


I am thinking some of the common more popular boards should go next such as the S-100 IDE V2, S-100 4MB SRAM, and S-100 buffered prototyping board.


Those tend to go quickly and won’t “plug up the system” with a bunch of unsold boards. 


Ideas?  Comments?  Thoughts?  Please let me know.  Thanks and have a happy holidays!
